Tunisia media directory

In December 2021, a Tunisian man reads a newspaper on Habib Bourguiba Avenue in the nation's capital, Tunis

The predominant medium is television. Many people watch satellite networks and pan-Arab channels.

Although this is forbidden by the broadcasting regulator, many privately owned outlets have direct or indirect political connections. The audiences of privately owned TV and radio stations are larger than those of state media.

Regarding media freedom, Tunisia ranks highly among Arab nations, but there are worries about the continued application of restrictive laws from the previous regime.

Although the online environment is open and vibrant, people tend to self-censor when talking about delicate subjects.

By December 2021, there were 8.1 million internet users, or 68 percent of the population (Internetworldstats.com).
